  1. Overcoming Fear by stephanie reck  
    God tells us in the Bible over 100 times, "Do not be afraid." Yet, we can be paralyzed and overcome with fear. There is a lot of things we can fear, the unknown, the future, change, people, failure, and rejection.

  2. I Don't Want to Look Like an iPhone by Abby Kelly

  6. Whatever! by Pam Ford Davis  
    "When I hear a disinterested, 'whatever,' response, I am going to take it seriously."

    So who was Alexander? And what evil did he do to Paul that he had to mention it to Timothy in this letter? Could it not wait since Timothy would be coming to him? How painful was it that he even had to say "the Lord reward him according to his works"?
    We would get to know all these as we read on.
    I've come to understand that in our work with God, we could be exposed to temptations that if not overcome might lead to betrayal of one another for various 'idols'.

  8. A Canoe's Journey by Richard L. Provencher

  16. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 11 by Karl Kemp  
    Much of the discussion here in Part 11 is devoted to God's creation of man ("Let Us [us] make man in Our [our] image" [Gen. 1:26]) and God's plans for man (believers), including His ultimate plans. We also discuss the original vegetarian diet for man and animals and the seventh day (Gen. 2:1-3).

  22. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 10 by Karl Kemp  
    We continue the discussion of the firmament that God created on the second day, above which He placed the large amounts of excess water that was on the earth (Gen. 1:2) when His recreation began. And we discuss God's creation of the sun, moon, and stars on the fourth day (Gen. 1:14-19).

  23. Do not neglect by Cyril Almond  
    A stern command to not neglect what God has given us. So easy to do in a busy world

    Meeting the needs of the lost or hurting rarely fits neatly into our schedule. Sometimes, when we ourselves are suffering and therefore feel least able to minister, a needy person crosses our pathway. Should we ignore their needs, or look past our own in order to serve them? Jesus demonstrated sacrificial love and concern for the wellbeing of others and as his disciples we are called to emulate him.

    The first two-thirds of Part 9 are excerpts from Extended Note F, "The Use of 'Day' and the 'Seven Days' in the Creation Account of Genesis 1:1-2:3." Then we come to Gen. 1:7, 8, where God created the firmament and put the excess water on the earth above the firmament. That same water was undoubtedly poured out on the earth at the time of the flood of Noah's day.

  32. You Gave Your Word! by Steve Countryman  
    John 1:1-5 "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

  33. You Gave Your Word! by Steve Countryman  
    Hebrews 6:13 "When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself" God gave us His word and has kept His word. His promises are "yes" and "amen". God gave His word as a promise to mankind and God gave His Word, Jesus, as that promise fulfilled to mankind.

  38. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 7 by Karl Kemp  
    We finish the study of the Hebrew verb "badal," which means to separate, to distinguish between, etc., which is quite important for the interpretation of Genesis 1:1-2:3. This verb is used five times in this passage. Then we come to a section titled, "A Discussion Regarding Symbolic/Spiritual Language in the Bible." And finally we begin to discuss God's removing the large amounts of excess water on the earth and putting it above the firmament He makes on the second day.

    ..the small worries that take up the most space..first of all fill our lives with the larger stones of God's favour..then watch as he responds by pouring all the smaller grains of our daily needs..

  45. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 6 by Karl Kemp  
    We continue with the study on the symbolic/spiritual use of the words light, darkness, day, and night, which is very important to the interpretation of the creation account of Genesis 1:1-2:3. And we begin a study on the Hebrew verb "badal," "to separate," "to distinguish between," which is used five times in this passage. A proper understanding of this verb is quite important to the interpretation of this creation account.

  47. 7 Solid Reasons Why God Blesses His People Financially by Ngozi Nwoke

  48. His Silences by Pam Ford Davis  
    "I am learning to trust His silences."

  49. LESSONS FROM THE LEPER by Ikpa Onwuka  
    There are four lessons which we must learn from the Luke chapter one leper who had his healing instantly at his encounter with Jesus. He came to Jesus a leper, but left a whole man. He had his request honoured immediately. The big question is: What did he do? Or what did he not do that yielded such instantaneous result? Mind you, Jesus still lives within us today, so it's not a question of whether we see him physically as the leper saw.

  50. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 5 by Karl Kemp  
    Genesis 1:1 serves as a title for the creation account of Gen. 1:1-2:3. Genesis 1:1 does not speak of God creating all things out of nothing in the absolute beginning; the earth was created and Lucifer fell and was judged before Gen. 1:1. We also begin a study of the frequent and quite important symbolic use of the words "light" and "darkness" in the Bible here in Part 5.

  51. Peace in the Storm by stephanie reck  
    We cannot avoid strife in this world, but with God we can know perfect peace, even in turmoil. Keeping your thoughts and trust in God will keep you in peace. We can easily lose our peace, when we look at the surrounding circumstances in our lives and in the world.

  52. The Dead Hear His Voice And Live And Not Die by Ngozi Nwoke

    I'll include several excerpts that will briefly explain the Cambrian explosion, which is quite important and some excerpts from "Earth's Earliest Ages" by G. H. Pember that was originally published in 1876 that deal with the probable origin of demons. Then we will start a rather thorough verse-by-verse study of Genesis 1:1-2:3.

  59. A Worthy Prayer by Abby Kelly  
    God doesn't need His ego stroked. He does not bend His ear to earth because we are radically devoted to Him. God bends low to hear us because of His love for us, his unwarranted, unprecedented, deadly, life-giving love.

  64. From Riches to Reliance by Abby Kelly  
    ncome to budget, when budgeting no longer makes sense? When you don't have the extra 5% to put into an emergency fund, or 10% into savings, or when you don't have enough to purchase the bonus-size box of diapers even though it really is a better deal?

  65. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 2 by Karl Kemp

  74. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 1 by Karl Kemp  
    This account of God's creation of our world in Genesis 1:1-2:3 is quite important. For one thing, we must know that God (the God of the Bible) is the Creator of all that exists, including the universe, the earth, and man. We must know that we were created by God in His image, that we are fallen beings (see Genesis chapter 3 for a start), and that we are called to repent and submit to God's very generous plan of salvation.

  75. In the Early Church Was It Only Apostles Who Laid on Hands for Spirit Baptism? by Max Aplin  
    There are Christians who argue in this way: In the early church, only apostles laid on hands for baptism in the Holy Spirit; because there are no apostles today, there is no longer any place for the laying on of hands for Spirit baptism. However, firstly, even if it were the case that only apostles laid on hands for Spirit baptism in the early church, we would still expect others to take over this practice once they were dead. And, secondly, there is in fact substantial evidence that in the early church non-apostles often laid on hands for Spirit baptism.

  81. The Narrow Path by Steve Countryman  
    Hebrews 6:1-3 1 "Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, 2 instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And God permitting, we will do so."

  82. The Narrow Path by Steve Countryman  
    The natural sees the impossible and says "Why bother, you can't make it". There is no way for me to travel that far on my hands and knees. No way that I could cover that great distance in several lifetimes if I could. That is when it hit me. That is the whole point! I can't do it alone.

  85. Advantaged? by Ramona Cook

  86. Pestilent Preachers by Pam Ford Davis  
    "It is nonsensical; yet many thought of Apostle Paul as a pest."

  87. The Extensity of Grace by Yuri Solomon  
    Jacob felt that he had to face the mess he made. And so he did, with great fear and trepidation, anticipating the same anger on the face of Esau that he fled all those years ago. Isn't those our questions as well: How good is God's grace? How far does its reach? How much does it cover? Does it deal with all the things we fear? What is grace that will save us in a far country, but will not allow us to go back home?

  88. Jesus is the Vine, We are the Branches by stephanie reck  
    Let's take a closer look at what a vinedresser is and use that comparison to our relationship with Jesus. A vinedresser is involved with daily pruning and cultivation of grapevines. Vinedressers work nearly year-round to ensure they have a successful crop.
